10:08 pm
all the people back home that i represent. they're asking why. why mr. president, why now, why ever would you put our policy at a table to be negotiated with people like that. makes sense. lou: an overwhelming irony here that is irresistible. you have to take note. i mean, in this instance t president has actually been put into a subordinate position by iran and north korea and syria on the issue of defending american citizens second amendment rights. and that is a preposterou position for him to put himself in. >> preposterous, but we are starting to learn as a people now, four years of this. for present is that this would be clear and transparent, there nothing murkier than the way this administration works. alan the world can we turn our back on that those rights that were enshrined in our bill of rights by the fnders.
10:09 pm
the right to keep and bear arms. my goodness. why did we put that on the table in the beginning? why would we get to the table with bad actor and give these pirates and dictators the same voice that the united states of america has. does not make sense. >> t president today, dramatically, he just wants to shame us all into doing what he wants, that is, rolling back our second amorites. your reaction to that statement. >> the american people need to shame them into following the constitution. this person as what he is talking about. he knows how the game is played. the people of this country, and this has nothing to do with republicans or democrats are libertarians are independents but red blooded americans. these are rights that are enshrined. a gift to us by the founders. i'm sitting back now and i have only been in congress for two years. watching what is going on here. we cannot keep seating our sovereignty of other people around the world. not the united states of america, not the greatest offender personal freedom and liberty that the world has ever
10:10 pm
known. and i just say, this president has a different view of american and may be your idea or the people that represent. he took this global vision that makes absolutely no sense to me. lou: ask you this because you talk about his vision, you talk about his relationship with the constitution, whether he was a lecturer on constitutional law or not, the university of chicago law school, the fact of the matter is the man has been misrepresenting truth. he has said that on obamacare, premiums would not go up. the costf health care would decline, that we could keep our doctors. we could keep our health care plans. turns out none of that is tru on the second amendnt he is talking, it is bizarre that there is no accountability for this a ministration on simple uth and the facts.
10:11 pm
>> the people have an opportunity to peaceably assemble competition their government for redress of grievance. we started something called2 petition that. american citizens can go and practice their first amendment rights, go to that site, register your feelings on it, and will give that to the president. he is got to start paying attention to the people of the unitedtates. i am astounded that people are not rising and saying more about it. people are listening. much more on the assault on the second amendment. but talking about that. and the united nations arms reader of this broadcast. stay with us. misrepresentation, propaganda, outright lies. but the tru lives here. we have some facts that the anti-gun faction does not want
